Joan Mitchell Foundation Toofly

 

This fall I had the pleasure of reconnecting with my friend Jose since our days at School of Visual Arts. As the Artist Programs Manager of the Youth Artist Initiative at Joan Mitchell Foundation he is able to find creative ways to expose young alumni to professional careers in the arts. I am so thankful for the invitation to speak about my work, and to provide guidance and tips to young passionate minds. It was such and honor, and it made me super happy to see my friend with a big heart again. Thank you for all you do!

The 1XRun X RickyPowell X Toofly collab has dropped! It is so much fun to draw and illustrate on top of photography, especially images by the legendary Ricky Powell who’s street photography of Hip Hop artists, and New York City life over the years captured captured classic moments in time. Check out sneek peek at the 3 embellished workscreated for the project featuring Rakim and LL Cool J. Mutual Respect is a Beautiful Thing!

Ladies Love Project Holiday Pop-Up 2018 Re-Cap

Akumal Arts Festival Re-Cap

December 12th, 2018 | Category: Events,Travel

Back in the studio. It’s time to re-cap the experience of the Akumal Arts festival! Wow…where do I start?

Toofly Akumal Arts Festival 1

Toofly Akumal Arts Festival 2

Based on experience to these massive projects, especially for the 1st time one has to be patient, and organized. The crew did it’s best to accommodate all 70 artists. An ambitious number to manage but when your heart is in it, you have money, man power, and event is in a reasonably sized town everything is possible. Once artists had what they needed it to start their walls, we were rockin’. I think also when you personally prepare in advance it helps you a lot. Your travel, transport, paint list, accommodation details, etc; all small details are important too. Organizers can only do their best when they are being bombarded with a million questions during a festival. I experienced it with our Warmi Paint Festival and I can definitely say it is not easy. As an artist in a festival to be self sufficient as much as possible is in your benefit. The rest eventually falls into place.

I specifically planned on a small wall for this event because #1 HEAT EXHAUSTION. Mexico is hot, and if your wall has no shade your fucked for hours #2 IT’S THEIR 1ST EVENT. You can expect things not to go perfect #3 EQUIPMENT. It is never on time at any festival and with 70 artists there’s no way plenty of ladders / scaffolds will be available. So expect the unexpected and work around it.
